I\'m surprised theres so many neggy reviews for this game so I have to add my 2 cents worth !

I got this game for $1 and it\'s tons of fun and different ! Nice RPG with pretty cool stuff in it like a sorcerer stuck in a bottle \'cos his spell backfired on him ! lol and a quest to help him out of the bottle ! The graphics are amazing for such a low priced game. I expected a cool adventure and got one ! So much to explore and fun to have in this game ! I just started playing this game and it looks awesome ! I\'m looking forward to playing this game for awhile !

If your looking for an RPG that is different and priced cheap then this one should do for you !

This is a difficult game to recommend for everyone, but it certainly has its audience, so let me start by saying:

Ravensword: Shadowlands is a game for you if you:

  • Are in the mood for a light, simplified RPG with limited customization and options
  • Are not scared by less than stellar graphics
  • Can tolerate a bit of grinding

On the other hand, if you are purist of the genre or have very high expectations, I would not recommend this game to you. You'll only get frustrated, or bored. And life is too short to be either.

Ravensword: Shadowlands is a simple game, with simple aspirations. The world is built with thick, not too careful brush strokes, and the story follows the same pattern. Still, it works, and that's as much as you can ask of it. The gameplay is kind of barebones for an RPG, with a small skill tree where most branches aren't really needed. Also, you'll find places where difficulty spikes are big, seemingly to encourage longer playtimes.

However, there are interesting ideas in the package. And the game is pretty optimized for a casual audience. The quests aren't overly long and can be easily followed, inventory management is reduced to a minimal expression (only weight can give you some problems from time to time) and the world is attractive enough to keep you engaged for the relatively modest amount of hours you need to dedicate to the game.

I am recommending the game based on the premise at the beginning, and also because, for me, it filled a very simple place in my library: a simple distraction from more complicated games. Sometimes, that's exactly what's needed.

Was asked to find and kill a Snow Yeti, wandered a barren landscape for 20 minutes, only finding two orcs that dropped goblin shields, suddenly heard a strange groaning sound and was told I had killed said Yeti, went and claimed my reward. 5/7 Perfect Score!

I was quite surprised how long I played it, and how actually playable it is, considering it does look and feel like someone's first or second game. It is quite bare bones, minor detail, and the gameplay is average, but not broken. I feel like this was a good first step into game development, and I hope the dev gets a good idea of what a game needs, and how to polish it.
Making games is NOT easy.

Worth $1 - $2, but no more. Reminds me of a beta-version Morrowind.

I only have four complaints. ONE: The voice acting is HORRIBLE, TWO: Some enemy placement is a little odd, such as where you can get overwhelmed alot, THREE: The difficulty slider is like a bathroom faucet it is either hard or too easy no inbetween, FOUR: the game promises updates, but that was three years ago...
over all i would give this a 3.5/5, its basicly skyrim for people who cant: run, afford or play because of the mature content in it. its a fun game but no use in getting this if you have skyrim.

I Tryed my best to give it a chanse! but seriusly this game is a joke!
the graphics are not half bad but the actual game play can kill! the sync between graphics and actions is non existance, you have to pause and take every single item from looting, npc interaction is horible(the voice acting even worse!) and the minimap system is like there is not a minimap system on the game at all!!! (it disapears every time you change screan(go to inventory for example) or when fighting etc etc.
Sad cos if the creator gave it a litle more time it could be an awesome game to play. but this game made me wonder if the people that start making games even test em!
1/10 Fallen Dissaproves!

Ravensword: Shadowlands s'inspire des TES et Gothics mais évidemment il n'en a pas la carrure, cependant il n'est pas dénué d'intérêt, il y a mêmes de bonnes idées comme la gestion de la faim, la "chasse", certains sorts (marrants à utiliser) ou le fait de pouvoir se déplacer sur le dos de différentes créatures. Les environnements sont plutôt beaux et variés, malgré des textures assez pauvres. Quand à l'histoire elle est tout à fait classique, tout comme les quêtes d'ailleurs.
Les faiblesses sont le respawn des ennemies et la difficulté parfois abusée et mal équilibrée, qui peuvent parfois décourager. Ainsi que quelques bugs, mais rien de bien grave le jeu étant plutôt bien fini.
Finalement je dirais que c'est un petit RPG assez sympathique à prendre à petit prix et à jouer lorsque l'on a un peu de temps entre deux grosses licences.

Voici que débarque sur PC, Ravensword Shadowlands, un action-RPG développé à la base sur Iphone, qui a réussi à se faire remarquer sur ce support. Mais si le parc des RPG sur téléphone est encore à développer, sur PC, le terrain est déjà bien occupé par des blockbusters qui assurent leur pérennité grâce à des épisodes presque tri-annuels et qui se sont installées il y a au moins une décennie. Et puis d'ailleurs, un portage vers une machine bien plus puissante est-il un bon point ou tout simplement une erreur ? Ce jeu acclamé par des joueurs sur téléphone est-il tant que cela une réussite sur PC ? Bien des questions auxquelles je vais essayer de répondre.

Ravensword : Shadowlands propose de poursuivre la quête de Ravensword the Fallen king sorti fin 2009 sur IPhone. Retrouvé sur les lieux d'une bataille avec une mémoire en carton et recueilli par les habitants d'Aven, vous allez essayer de comprendre ce qui s'est passé et quelle est votre destinée maintenant. Un pitch des plus conventionnels ne poussant pas à l'excitation mais qui permet de se mettre dans le bain. Après un choix de personnalisation faciale (nez, tête, bouche) très succinct mais existant, vous voici libre de partir à l'aventure dans Aven la cité du royaume, lieu central de l'univers qui se compose de plusieurs régions.

Une jouabilité affreuse, un jeu moche qui est passé directement de la case tablette à la case PC sans le moindre effort, une IA à l'image du reste, des villes vides et tristes... Ils ont même réussi à vautrer jeu dès le lancement ou pour un PC sur 2 il faut tweaker le lanceur Steam avec un paramètre bidon.

Porter un jeu tablette moyen vers PC ne suffit pas, ce titre pue la fénéantise.

Uninspired grind grind grind grind. After a few hours of almost nothing but killing goblins, boars and bears I'm giving up. I have no clue what the point of the story is supposed to be, what the world is, why I should care, and my character is already level 10. Maybe it gets better later on, but I couldn't bring myself to kill the same dozen infinite-respawning bears again and again to find out.

So, Ravensword: Shadowlands is pretty much terrible - can you believe that? This game feels unfinished/unpolished and is exactly the kind of stuff that gives mobile games their bad name. Basically, it seems to be a pseudo-ElderScrolls rip-off with a slightly upgraded combatsystem (dodgerolls!). The problem is, it feels like a working alpha of something that they somehow never bothered with completing. I mean, the original Elder Scrolls: Arena had more going on than this - the plot is (even considering that the majority of fantasy RPGs have very bad stories) incredibly dull. Some big foozle wants to take over the lands from his shadowy demon-dimension... yadda-yadda. You are "the chosen one" who needs to find and wield some sort of legendary sword that can kill demons. As simplistic as this premise is, with a bit of lore here and there and some developed characters this still could have worked. The devs did not bother though, you hero has no personality whatsoever and the NPCs all have about 2 lines of dialogue - but aren't having any characteristics or personality either and only serve as generic placeholders, fulfilling a certain function like questgiver or vendor. And don't expect them to have some sort of "life" they will be frozen in place day and night, just waiting for you to interact with them in the most basic way imagainable. I have seen quite a bit of openworld-games that were lacking in the story/character-department - but this game is literally devoid of anything even remotely resembling "writing".

Unfortunately, that is only the tip of the iceberg - as the gameplay is just as underwhelming. If you manage to find a quest (you don't exactly see who is a questgiver and who is not, so you go running around town talking to everybody and feel like you will never get those minutes of wasted life back) you can go about getting X, killing X or talking to X. Which is hardly entertaining nor exciting especially when there is basically no motivation besides gold or XP. Questing as a whole feels utterly pointless (that is why I did about three missions in the entire game and simply didn't bother anymore). The mainquest isn't much better off, you basically run as far as you can to all four cardinal points, find a dungeon, get a stone and return.

The rest of the time you spend hacking and slaying various beasts and enjoying the scenery. But even here the game manages to fail, as the vast areas are strangely barren. Feeling a lot like early MMORPGs with mobs just sprinkled over the landscape without much rhyme or reason - then again, all the enemies either just stand around waiting to be killed or roam a very tiny area so it doesn't look too static when you can see them from far away. Which is another low-point - you spend way too much time running through empty areas, there is nothing happening and not much to explore despite the vastness of the maps.

If you finally manage to get locked into combat with one of the beasts it is mostly a "click 'em to death"-afair without much finesse. Sure, you can block, dodgeroll or cast some spells from magic runes - but there is no punch to any of that, no "gamefeel" whatsoever. And it is ultimately pointless as you will sooner or later be either dead because you get caught in a loop of weird hitstun (getting clobbered to death in the process) or dealing one-shots to all who oppose you.

As a game, it is a failure - horribly unfinished, at times feeling like a fangame or a mod to something. The only things I kind of enjoyed were the visuals and the music - which is overly dramatic considering that nothing really "epic" happens and suffers from the loops not being long enough, thus becoming somewhat repetitive. While the visuals, which are not exactly state of the art, have that early 2000-charme to them. Some of the monster-models are looking actually pretty cool and at times there are even nice details on creatures, like the saliva dripping from the jaws of some of the bigger dinosaurs you encounter. Some of the beasts you fight are pretty huge too, which was kinda fun and again reminded me of some olden MMORPG-shenanigans.

Finally, the UI is pretty bad - sorting stuff or selling items to vendors feels clunky. There is NO gamepad support, eventhough I think this game could work pretty good with a controller. And you just can tell from clicking around the status screens that this was ment to be on a touch-enabled screen, which is less than optimal on a machine that has proper input-technology attached to it.

I think it is worth a laugh or two if on sale, as it is hilariously crappy and underwhelming (and I actually did finish it!) but since you can get almost every other noteworthy and/or modern Openworld-RPG on PC here on Steam, there is NO reason to get this other than ♥♥♥♥♥ & giggles.

Watch the full review at http://www.youtube.com/brbteabreaktv
http://youtu.be/lgnAjR2RFRo

As of late we've seen more and more smartphone games get ported over to PC, with mixed results. This is because they're usually saturated in heavy microtransactions, which are very common on the smartphone marketplace. Rarely do we see a port and not see microtransactions, Ravensword: Shadowlands is one of these examples.

The PC Port itself is a mixed bag; it improves its graphical fidelity with improved textures and post effects, re-bindable keys and an improved control scheme which is vastly superior to its smartphone counterpart. That’s where things end; the UI cannot be customised and is very clunky as it's made to be used with limited screen space. Everything in the menus can only be done through mouse clicks, leading to frustrations after continued use.

Animations are clunky, actions feel unresponsive, combat and movement inputs override each other causing unrealistic actions, such as performing an attack followed up by a roll which shows a standing attack animation but you move as if you’re rolling. The RPG elements are very basic, all the talents, stats and gear are simple increase X or Y with no real flare to them, there are no tough options and it’s hard to see your character truly progress.

For $15 it’s a hard sell, its smartphone equivalent is $7.50 and I think that price should carry over to the PC platform. While it does change and improve on its smartphone build, it falls a little short at its current price.

Though it's currently on sale so it may be just what you're looking for even with all its faults. Play for a couple hours, have a laugh or two and move on.
